Hi, I really want this phone but it's not directly available in the UK, so I'm a little concerned about how it will perform. Has anyone else brought one over from abroad & can vouch for it's performance on our infrastructure here?
DaPhoneGuy, 17 Dec 2015Talkback mode is a serious pain. It's designed for the vision impaired and completely changes ... moreThank you so much!! That back talk was driving me nuts and there was nothing I could have done. More over, the Verizon wizards did not know either. Who could have guessed to pull down the screen with the whole palm? Is it anywhere in there instructions?
One more thing: Isn't that stupid to not have Russian language on the list of available languages when there are so many totally unknown ones? 200 million people in the world still speak Russian. I was offered by Verizon to return the Turbo 2. Gladly one of their guys was smart enough to solve the problem in 5 minutes.
Brian, 26 Jun 2016Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I HATE this phone. It requires a minimum of 3 full charges... moreSomething wrong with your phone brother. Take that to the service center or check the battery usage. If it's all screen usage there then return the device. Because it is a battery problem. If android system is using that much then it's time to reinstall or update your phone by pc. Check again... I can guarantee you there is nothing wrong with turbo 2.
These phones are horrible. My first wouldn't take a charge, so I was sent a second one. The second won't work with the charger that came with the phone, but the charger works with other phones. The battery life is horrid. I switched From a RAZR Maxx which was the best phone I've owned. Wish I still had it.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I HATE this phone. It requires a minimum of 3 full charges per day. A full charge lasts me about 4 hours with only minimal use, and I don't use the phone that much. Switching from an iPhone to this was the worst mistake I could have made.
Love the phone had trouble with it at all. Got it in November works great
ADR1ANA, 17 Jun 2016The phone really have infrared port? Please somebody tell me!It is written in the specs
infrared port Yes
Ang, 11 Jun 2016Does your phone just randomly shut off and oblyturn onwhen it's in the charger.
And the bat... more Depends on how you use it of course. First of all, you gotta disable/uninstall all the apps and bloatware you don't need, I disabled about 20 - 25 x.x, got mine from Verizon.
If your just a daily user, the phone for sure goes 2 days or uses around 40% battery on a daily use like 1-2 hours of browsing with wifi. The phone does tend to get warm feeling like something 75 - 80 F in your hard after over 30 min of video or touching, clicking, or bright screen backlighting from usage or could be because I put a plastic shock absorb cover around it.
If you browse a lot, then yeah it will come down to 1 day's lasting. Same for music, all-day music would make the phone last just about a whole day. If you don't usually use your phone during the day that much except for talk and text it will last 5-7 days with around 12% usage each day. I used to be able to get up to 9 day battery lasting with barely using the phone, it seems to have dropped a bit after Marshmallow update or maybe its because battery slowly dieing after 7 month use already. I got mine early November last year.
Overall I really like it, but its my first high-end smartphone. My previous or first smartphone I ever had was the Moto X (2013).
I've had this phone since mothers day, it works wonders, my previous phone was the ultra and omg the amount of bad luck I had with that phone was ridiculous, but this phone I've dropped it a few times and only a few dings in the corners. Very impressed with storage, battery and turbo charge, love this phone!!
Anonymous , 28 May 2016On my 3rd phone in less than 6 months. It's a piece of junk. All 3 have had issues chargin... moreThere are apps you can get in the Play Store for any phones that help save the battery by shutting down the app from Finding Your locations and your battery gets saved Etc
Eye on the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 there was a problem I had another phone users had with it with a green line on the side and people didn't know how to get rid of it I had to uninstall a few apps I think the phone got crowded to many aps trying to find my location or whatever but when I removed a few apps then the problem went away. So far so good no problems with the green line any more
The Turbo2 is a great phone. Don't be misled by the Iphone hype. Shatterproof screen is a big plus for any smartphone user, and a 21mp camera is great to accompany an 8 core processor!

And the battery said it's turbo charging and when you disconnect it you can actually see the battery dropping rapidly
After a couple of months of normal use my DT2 wouldn't complete startup. After sending it back to Motorola they declared that there was water damage and that it voided the warranty. The device was not exposed to any kind of unusual moisture and the liquid indicator inside the sim tray does not appear triggered. The back of the device is glued on and there is no way for a regular user to be able to remove and replace the back of the device
Additionally there is no way to flash the device firmware to try to resolve the issue.
Jen, 30 May 2016Works great but when send text messages in group it says only delivered to someDid you have an iPhone before?
I personally own this phone and love it. The Specs above are incorrect based on Motorola's listed specs for the expandable memory. According to Motorola this phone can hold up to a 2TB card. I have a 256GB one in mine. Love this phone. That's a big deal for me since I was an iPhone user before.
best phone ever. dropped it about 200 times now (every time i exit a car, i have a bad habit of putting it on my lap and my stoned self forgets, 200 is a low estimate. on every surface, mostly concrete). i even took a spill on my longboard and the phone is literally twisted a few degrees. works as flawlessly and as fast as it did on day 1. battery is ridiculous.. 0-100% in about 45 minutes every time. lasts me 2-3 days depending on use. im on instagram mostly. best phone ever.
